According to regional Metrology Department, Chennai, Thunderstorm with moderate rain is likely to lash isolated places in Chennai, Tiruvallur, Chengalpattu and Kanchipuram districts for the next 3 hours (7 am to 10 am).

Widespread heavy rainfall has been recorded across Chennai on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, heavy rainfall also lashed Delhi and its NCR areas on Monday morning, bringing respite from the scorching heat.

The IMD forecasted cloudy skies with light rain possibility and drizzle in Delhi, NCR on Monday (June 19).

Meanwhile, Brahmaputra River in Assam also recorded a rise in water level due to the incessant rain. The situation of flood in Assam’s Lakhimpur remains grim.

The Assam government is on alert mode and has kept all agencies including the Indian army, Indian Air Force (IAF), and NDRF in loop to fight the emergency situation.

As the water levels of many rivers are rising up due to incessant rain and a few districts of Assam have been affected in the first spell of the flood, the state government is ready to deal with any kind of situation and directed all districts to be alert.

Talking about the flood preparedness made by the state government, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Assam Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) Gyanendra Dev Tripathi told that, the overall situation is building up, not at its peak and it is the start of flood season, but the state government is fully prepared to deal with any kind of situation.

The remnant of the cyclonic storm Biparjoy which created a depression over central parts of East Rajasthan is likely to move nearly east-northeastwards and maintain its intensity of depression during the next 12 hours, said the India Meteorological Department (IMD).
